Become a Vendor

New Vendor Applications are now CLOSED.

*****Application process will re-open February 2019*****

New Vendor Application Process:

  • Market Focus:  The Sarasota Farmers Market is not a flea market.  We take a lot of pride into making sure that agriculture is a priority for vendor consideration.
  • All applicants, if accepted, are to sign a yearly contract.  The market is open year round. Vendors are allowed 7 weeks off per year, but not more than three weeks consecutively.
  • The owner applying as a vendor needs to be present at the market year round.
  • Artisans:  The market only accepts artisans that make their own product.
  • Process:  All applications will be submitted to the New Vendor Committee.  If they feel it could be a possible fit for the market, applicants will be asked to attend a board meeting for a 5-minute presentation and interview by the board.  The board will vote that night and applicants will be notified the following day.
  • Electricity:  Electricity is limited at the market.  Most electricity is to be used for small items such as fan, credit card machine, etc.
  • Vendors applying will be notified via email to confirm we have received your application.  Applying vendors will be notified within 30 days of a response from the New Vendor Committee.
